Chosen as Best Film at the Japan Academy Prize ceremony, the remake tele-movie features Best Actresses Ryoko Shinohara and Tae Kimura, alongside Alice Hirose, Takaya Kamikawa and Rio Suzuki. Based on the novel Ai wo kou hito, the story is about a disturbing child abuse memory that comes back on a quest for her father’s grave. The love-starved protagonist, Terue, was horribly abused by her mother, Toyoko. As a result, Terue is hungry for love but doesn’t know how to be loved. Years later, Terue grows up and has a daughter Fukasa who is in senior high school. When she reunites with her estranged younger brother Tekenori, she recalls the suppressed memories of her miserable childhood. Then, with encouragement from Fukasa, Terue goes to Taiwan in search of her late father’s grave and learns something she never knew about her mother.
